Storyline

Juan Garcia is a boy on the threshold of manhood living in a gang-controlled neighborhood. His role models could not be further apart: his older sister Angie, a single mom, struggling to gain a foothold in the white corporate world and his uncle Manny, an ex-gang member, who has fallen into an acting career playing gang members since his release from prison. With the future on his doorstep, Juan, like most boys, can only think of girls and is unaware of the judicial system's hard line stance against gang affiliation. Written by Boricua Films

Great Film. Exciting and well shot
3 April 2017 | by wlai-91389See all my reviews

Love this movie. One of Danny Trejos best works. Johnny Ortiz did a great acting job. Sometimes you roll with the wrong crowd when you grow up and loyalty is strong. This movie portray this well. Nice filmmaking in LA. It had some great shots of LA, the sky rises, the murals and art of LA. Watched it on comfort of my phone.
